Cannabis stocks aren’t all profitable. In fact, very few are “in the black.” There are a few, though, that are carrying revenue toward the bottom line.

Here’s where you can learn more about margin analysis.

cannabis stock gross, operating, net margins april 2021

Gross Margin = Gross Profit Curr Year ÷ Annual Rev Curr Year. Be wary of cannabis stocks with negative gross margins. It’s one thing to not yet be profitable in a relatively young industry such as this. It’s quite another to not earn enough revenue to cover the cost of bringing your product to market.

Operating Margin = Operating Profit Curr Year ÷ Annual Rev Curr Year. Poor gross margins translate into poor operating (and net) margins. Some of these cannabis companies are young and spending a lot of money to secure market share. That’s understandable. But, beware of cannabis companies that dump money, year after year, into operating expenses and never earn a return on that investment.

Net Margin = Net Profit Curr Year ÷ Annual Rev Curr Year. Ultimately, your cannabis stock should earn ever-increasing profit. That’s the goal, anyways.

Will leverage help your cannabis stock earn more profit?

Leverage can help amplify your cannabis stock’s margins. It can also compound poor management decisions. Leverage comes in two basic flavors – financial and operating.

Here’s where you can find out more about operating leverage.

And, here you can learn more about financial leverage.

cannabis stock operating financial leverage april 2021

Degree of Operating Leverage (DOL) compares changes in Operating Profit to changes in Annual Revenue. For example, if a company has a DOL of 1.3, then a 70% increase in Revenue would be expected to result in a 91% increase in Operating Profit (70% × 1.3). The reverse is also true. A 70% decrease in Revenue would be expected to result in a 91% decrease in Operating Profit (-70% × 1.3)!

Degree of Financial Leverage (DFL) looks at changes in Operating Profit and Interest Expense. For example, if a company has a DFL of 1.3, then a 30% increase in Operating Profit would be expected to result in a 39% increase in Net Profit (30% × 1.3). Again, the reverse is also true. A 30% decrease in Operating Profit would be expected to result in a 39% decrease in Net Profit (-30% × 1.3)!

Here’s where you can find out more about leverage; plus other useful ratios.
